Pretty Poet

Where Have All The Pretty Poets Gone? 

A real poet are you, charismatic over everything you serve
Showcasing, a rainbow that folds the perfect world wide perspective
I'm talking about flawless literature at its best no typos, no muss
Just a page full of boredom and rust
Thank you for having Lunesta all up in my head
It's like reading a poetry lesson, from the extras of The Walking Dead
An image frozen cold, waiting for inspiration to hit like Al Capone
I'm bored of your flora flamboyant language rocking me like stones
A psychedelic trip, into the odyssey of a blind man's tale
A home where I am pushed to open a dictionary & thesaurus with braille
Wondering what you just said, --Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful day! 
  
The best rocket pen poet in the USA Today, 
Launching words like no tomorrow, a fool of wordplay and sorrow
A godlike guinea-pig genius, delegating poetry politician style
Perhaps, one day you will become a famous writer
Burning books, like a cigarette lighter
Until then, enjoy pushing your pen as if it was cocaine, 
Snorting up and cutting up the food chain in vain
Patronizing and ignoring those, for better or worse
A solo cup stuck up another cup, -won't even look my way
Correct me if you will, it's no big deal
Just don't forget to give me the same respect I offer you

Until then my pretty poetic friend, I kneel before no one

    "It's like reading a poetry lesson, from the extras of The Walking Dead" Clever line that made me laugh. I got most of your references. This surely enhanced the poem and its rather contemporary feel. Hope I don't bore you too much with this comment! All I have to say is... I like your sass! Your spirit is wild and free. Always, Laura

    re reading this poem gives me a completely new feel than the first time i read it. it has occurred to me of late that the best poets on my list wrote mostly in one not many styles. Free verse started out as a break out for poets who wanted to buck the trend and contain their art in a shell that was true to them.

    I like this a lot. It doesn't hold anything back. It's blunt and real, which are two things I love. I find you very inspiring above all else. I'm glad I got to met you and your work. Jessica

    No one can more faithfully eschew, polysyllabic obfuscation in the way you do. This poem is delightful and you ever the irrepressible and irascible master. Continue to destroy.

    a biting satirical send up of what I call the 'literati glitterati'! the line about extras from the walking dead had me chuckling, and there's a nice sprinkling of alliteration and internal rhyme throughout - congrats on your win in my contest! :)
